LG V10 Unboxing & Review!


The LG V10 comes with a Snapdragon 808 processor w/ 4gigs of RAM, 5.7-inch 1440P screen with a secondary screen, 16MP back camera w/ laser focus, two 5MP front cameras, 3000mAh removable battery, microSD card slot, and nano-SIM card slot.

The new LG V10’s design is more or less rugged, features stainless steel rails on the sides with textured hard plastic back cover, which helps you hold the phone and does not get any fingerprints. While the LG V10 design doesn’t look pretty as the Note 5, it is more practical and functional in my opinion and I rather have practical design than a pretty lookin’ glass back that I would need to use a case anyways.

As for size, the LG V10 is slightly taller and wider than the Note 5 and much narrower, shorter than the Nexus 6. While the Nexus 6 is a huge phone and a bit over the edge, the LG V10 feels great in the hands just like the Note 5. If you are worried about the size, trust me, LG V10 is a tad bigger than the Note 5 and you won’t feel a difference if coming from Note 4 or 5. While I felt the size would be too big before I got the phone, I am glad that it doesn’t feel too big at all in real life testing.

Compared to the LG G4, the LG V10 is slightly bigger phablet device in the same class as the 5.7-inch Note 5. If you like the size of Note 5, you will love the LG V10 also.

So, the LG V10 is the bigger, badder brother of the LG G4, what are some of the new features?

First, LG V10 comes with a fingerprint sensor located on the back of the phone on the power button itself. I was able to register both of my index fingers and the fingerprint sensor works very well.  To use it, simply press on the power button and you will be able to unlock the phone easily and this worked flawless for me as the fingerprint sensor worked every time, no hit-and-misses.  I really like how this is the natural position you hold the phone and the fingerprint sensor location is just perfect for people who don’t like using the extra muscles of their thumb.  I mean, it is bit annoying and you can drop your phone more easily with home button fingerprint sensors while the natural position of LG V10 allows unlocking without losing control of the phone.  I have been fond of the power button location on LG’s smartphones ever since I got my LG G3 couple years back and with LG V10, you will be able to experience the same great location except now it will also read your fingerprint and unlock your phone.

    You mentioned Samsung so much that this review sounded more like a comparison video than an actual review. And we get it. …..you aren’t a huge fan of Samsung. But all the negative references about the Note 5 was kind of annoying. Which was a shame bcuz I actually liked the other reviews I have seem from you.
